Re: Raspberry pi with CRT TV

What about the wifi? I have never used a wifi USB dongle before and I assume not all are compatible with Linux. You can't go far wrong with one of these , in my experience. They're ludicrously easy to set up (the instructions can be accessed at the bottom of the linked page, there), and work very w...

Re: Intel Galileo

I mean, why would anyone *want* (specifically) x86 hardware (*) other than so that they can run Windows (and Windows software). If Windows compatibility is not in your list of needs (or wants), then surely other alternative platforms (read: ARM) are more cost (and power) effective. Am I wrong about...

Re: HELP for a noob

Adafruit has a bunch of great tutorials and suchlike, which might help to provide some inspiration. They're available both online, and as downloadable PDFs, in case you want to print them for easy reference whilst working on things.

Re: IceWeasel and imacro?

Iceweasel is just Firefox with a different name slapped on it. Unless I'm being extremely dense, I can't think of any reason why this add-on shouldn't work... (Cue someone to point out that I'm missing something and am being dense, now. :lol: )

Re: "permission denied"

It appears that you're in the directory of the user "root" for the command where you're having trouble. Since that directory belongs to a user other than the one you're likely using (I'm guessing you're logged in as "pi"?), try prefacing the chmod command with "sudo", so that it looks like this; sud...

Re: Installing on a USB

Is the fact that Pi is based on ARM versus i386 the reason you can't use Ubuntu on a Pi? That's because Ubuntu dropped support for the particular generation of ARM processor which is used in the Raspberry Pi (which is ARMv6), though they do support later ARM versions. I was wanting, for testing pur...

Yep. They only briefly supported ARM Linux at all, and even then it was only ARMv7 and no others, and they never really did much with it or gave it the general release that seemed to be a given when it was announced.
